Pinery Garden Tour

Black Forest Garden TourA note from the Black Forest Gardeners!

Garden Magic! Pinery Garden Tour

Date: August 20, 2016
Time: 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Price: $15 + fees ($1.74)

Come and join us on August 20, 2016 for our garden tour of The Pinery subdivision which is about 5 miles south of Parker, Colorado. Six very gracious homeowners have offered to open up their gardens to the public. Each garden has something different to offer – ponds, native grasses, sweeping vistas, bonsai and award winning dahlias.

We have several challenges that gardeners in Denver do not face – a short growing season, high altitude (over 6,000 ft) and wildlife. Come see how gardeners have overcome these challenges to create spectacular landscapes. This will be a self-guided tour. You can print a map or pick one up at the first garden.
